1. some day when i’ve traveled my last mile here,
the call will be coming for me;
i’ll enter the lifeboat that will be near
to carry me over the sea.
he’ll hold my hand
(hold to my hand)
as over death’s river i go;
then safe i’ll be
(safe i shall be)
in beautiful heaven i know.
2. my bark shall sail safely tho’ waves dash high,
for jesus will be at my side;
he’ll still the rough waters when by and by
i’m crossing the river so wide.
3. i’m ready to go to that golden sh-r-
to live there while ages shall roll;
i want to see jesus and saints of yore
in heaven the home of the soul.
